Infiniti rejoining to Nissan and moves headquarter back to Japan
Infiniti is rejoining the Nissan mothership by moving its headquarters back to Japan.
The Nissan's premium brand will relocate its head office from Hong Kong to Yokohama in the middle of next year in a push to centralize and streamline operations, the company said.
The announcement on yesterday comes seven years after Infiniti set up shop in Hong Kong in a bid to establish itself as an international brand and build inroads into the Chinese market.
Infiniti's return to Japan comes as the brand restructures its global footprint. In March, Infiniti said it would discontinue the Q30 and QX30 models, cease production at Nissan's plant in England and exit business in Western Europe.
Infiniti said the relocation would facilitate better coordination with the Nissan parent company. Much of Infiniti's research and product development and design work had never left Japan.
